there. i also wanted to make a couple comments on -- not on the election, but on part of the election process. most notably rank choice voting. >> right. >> i think it's appropriate that i do so because the supervisors in san francisco are extremely important positions. as we know, this is a city and county and it has more impact than probably any other county in state of california because of that fact. and also because in terms of land use issues, they have the ability to alter our decisions and reverse them. and we are dependent upon them for our confirmation, as i found out earlier this year and i knew all along the other three times. and there are some reasons i think that the system may need to be revisited. the whole idea of rank choice voting on three basis. number one, the basis of cost. number two, the basis of increasing the turnout of voters in a runoff election or in lieu of runoff the rank choice thing. and thirdly, this has more to do with district elections making the decisions reflective of the values of the people in the particular districts. in terms of cost, i thin

and i was running for office. we were in the same election, same ballot and it is easy as it is in san francisco politics to characterize people on either side of the aisle, and milton said "let me find out what this guy is about. let's talk" and that was very fitting because that's exactly how i knew him to operate as a public servant and a person. he wanted to talk about the china town campus and talk about my background. he asked if we should build a campus, and i said it's something that we should do and there was certainly overwhelming support for the campus, but characteristic of his style and his principles he was never afraid to question power, or to question the popular way, and he had many good points, and that was very typical of what i have known him to be as a servant at city college. it was very difficult in his position, often being the one vote out of seven, often finding rubber stamping of a decision, fighting the way we were spending our money for ten years. ten years he was in a position most of the time alone trying to speak up and say why are we doing this?

of political wife basically. when milton first ran for election it was the summer and fall of 2000 and we weren't married yet although we did get engaged during the campaign and a whole another story i won't be telling me. i learned a lot from the campaign. for one thing it gave me a glimpse into the childhood and the mother was involved and i think the campaign was old style and very effective. extensive pamphletting, bingo nights and a specialty of hers and sunday church services and reaching out to everyone at every opportunity, gog any and all events no matter how not related to the election or small. we see the same people in many places and at the college board and sometimes the candidates would out number the citizens coming to attend the event and in fact that wasn't unusual at all. many of you here know this world but i did not. some made me smile, and some things inner vaiting and later milton turned this into a lifelong variety of running jokes. one is for example if he was running late and a pta meeting or five year old birthday at a play ground and he would arrive "did

was brought forward shortly before a very contentious election season when people were focused on the presidential election and important local elections, and also when we all had to be in the field for those things and the holidays are coming up, and by the way every time this legislation has been introduced that has been the situation. the cynical attempt to ram this through without stakeholders that need to be involved in this process like the groups i represented, and the others that will speak. the fact that we have not been included in any shape, way or form substantially in this and we're barely getting time to read this so we know all the implications for it are crucial, but i can tell you i have dug into this document in the last couple weeks and the fact you're continuing it is crucial and we need more time. it's a confusing document but what i have seen it's a mine field for those that want to protect your neighborhoods and i want to thank whoever made the decision that put it up for continuance and urge you to continue it. we need more time to get our heads around
